House. Circa 1840-50, rear block is a part of a C16 house which was thoroughly renovated in early C18. Plastered granite stone rubble; granite stacks with plastered brick chimneyshafts (the main ones with projecting cornices); slate roof. Plan: the main block faces south-east. It has a double depth plan comprising a main front a rear room each side of central entrance hall and main staircase. The principal rooms are the front ones heated by end stacks. The rear service rooms are are in integral outshots and connected by a rear corridor passing behind the staircase. On the right (north-east) end there is a 2-roomplan block. It is set back from the main block at right angles to it with an outer lateral stack to the main front room. It projects to rear connecting the main block to the remains of the old farmhouse which is set parallel to the main block and projects to right of the connecting block. What remains of the old farmhouse is the passage, hall and inner room section of a 3-room-and-through-passage plan house. The inner room, at the right end, has a gable-end stack and the hall has an axial stack backing onto the passage. This house was thoroughly modernised in the early C18 and only the hall shows evidence of its C16 origins. Whole house is 2 storeys throughout. Exterior: main block has a symmetrical 5-window front of 12-pane sashes (most of them horned) arranged around a central doorway; part-glazed double doors and overlight behind a flat-roofed Doric porch with moulded entablature. Each side of front at stucco quoins . Plain eaves on pairs of shaped brackets and roof hipped each end. Other blocks and rear also have 12-pane sashes of various sizes the largest to rear of main block lighting the stairs. The connecting block on the side includes a C19 6-panel door with overlight, panelled reveals and plain doorcase. Interior: of main block contains a great deal of its original C19 joinery and other detail including a geometric open string stair with slender turned balusters, mahogony handrail and curtain step. In the rear block (the old farmhouse) the hall has a late C16 granite ashlar fireplace with relieving arch over the lintel. The crossbeam may be early or mid C17; it has plain soffit-chamfers. The rest of the house is apparently early C18 although older structural features may be hidden behind plaster. The inner room was a parlour. It has a moulded box cornice including a dentil frieze. The chimney piece has an eared surround and the panel above is flanked by fluted pilasters. A cupboard in the rear wall has similar flanking pilasters and fielded panel door. The stair to rear is probably early C18 but the balusters are boxed in. The hall chamber has a bolection chimneypiece and most of the doors in this block nave 2 fielded panels. Roof of this block also early C18; A-frame trusses with pegged lap-jointed collars.
